@ badlydrawnroy

I'm always a sucker for owl shots.

@ frankman

It's a pity about the foliage in the otherwise excellent second stilt shot. The rest more than make up for it though.

@ arescrew

Top pics -- the first nearly had me complaining until I had scrolled right down, and then I laughed.

Had to pull over on my way to work yesterday morning when I saw this Herring next to a pond. Taken with Sony A100 (Which I'm starting to love compared to my 5D for shooting long range) and Tamron 200-500mm. These are cropped pretty heavily since he / she wasn't very close and downsized. I wanted to include more of the stones in the first shot but there was grassy hill between the bird and I that blocked them.

Here's one I shot last weekend of two swallows "Gossiping" about the days events.

Fortunately, they are in the process of building a nest in the birdhouse on our deck, so I hope to get some good shots of their peeps in the future.

Turnstones taken on the Dutch coast near Belgium with the 80-200 + TC. Birds started of far away but due to the tide coming in and me sitting very still they kept coming closer. At a certain moment I even had to move backwards due to the focus distance of the lens!

Some bird shots from today and yesterday (looks like my camera's focus issue was fixed. The proof:)...

300mm @ f/8; 1/500 @ ISO-100


300mm @ f/8; 1/400 @ ISO-100


250mm @ f/8; 1/80 @ ISO-100


300mm @ f/8; 1/250 @ ISO-200


All of the above were taken with a Big Beercan - i love the lens (given what i paid for it, i better...), I just wish i could get it focusing on flying birds faster. So many shots i would love, but can't get because the focus is just too slow to get them in time. Oh well, more learning for me (and adapting to manual focus with this lens as well...)

Great shot Cam!

Is that lens so good?


Posted By: brettania
Date Posted: 05 May 2007 at 21:02

I don't use it all that often, but it certainly deserves most of its 4.56 rating -- my own assesment would be more a 4.1 since I judge it against lenses such as the 70-200 APO SSM.

The famous donuts don't appear if the lighting is right and there is nothing close behind or in front of the subject that is "messy" (such as branches).

You just can't beat it for portability, but it can be slow to focus if you are changing quickly from near to far and it is too slow for most on-the-wing shots unless you get a bit lucky.

There are some beautiful shots here. Obviously birds are a fond subject matter, and that's a good thing as they take honing of many skills, both technical and artistic, to master. Keep sharing! (P.S. the nuthatch is also one of my favourite birds. I was once out sailing a couple of miles offshore when a red-breasted nuthatch landed on my arm! He seemed to have no fear, sitting there for a few minutes, then going below, re-emerging later to sit on a line. He eventually left. I have found similar strange behaviour from birds on boats before, including when within easy sight of land, so exhaustion wasn't likely an issue. Maybe they don't recognize boats relative to land masses somehow.

Very nice shots everyone. I'm still practicing but am getting a litle steadier. Looking at some of these tack sharp shots makes me jealous! Now if I could just get closer to my subjects so I wouldn't have to crop so much. The Herring I shot on the way to work a week ago (I don't think I posted it before) The Swans I got this morning when I went to a local marsh. I believe they are Trumpeter swans. Their song was so cool I had to whip out the P&S and take a video so I could extract the audio and share it with family members. The last bird was at the marsh as well. He was really hidden in some trees and I just happened to spot the color as the sun was striking it. I had to manual focus because of the cover so I'm rather please with the result since manual focus and I ussually don't get along well. I don't know what kind of bird it is so if anyone can identify it please do.

Here is my first bird shot with my new toy, the minolta 300F4 that i bought from lockny (thanks again). I know its just a seagull, but i like it at the moment for the fact that it shows that i have improved a bit in birdshooting. I like these themed threads, that we share our passion for photography, and this thread is for the birds. so here is my shot:

sry its a bit large this time, but i did not want to crop it, scaling it much more would have looked ugly (that was a new one for me).

That's always my problem. I think it has something to do with my unsteady hands and hand holding a 500mm (=750mm) lens. I'm getting better though. Last year at this time most of my long shots were mush and I was blaming the lens.

Thanks,

@ brettania - I was using Sigma 70-300 Apo - it may be sharp but only when aperture set to at least f:8... you need a lot of light...

Arescrew, the duckling in the weeds is wonderful, really great shot, what lens did you use?

JamesD, the duck in the water is georgous. Did you use a flash to get the shot I love the the reflection in the eye.

Beautiful shots everyone. Wish I could comment on them individually, but they're all very good. Looks like the Northern Hemisphere birdlife is "warming up".

There really are some great shots here, well done everyone - I will have to get more patient with my shooting and go out somewhere with my tripod and a chair and really settle in, I'm too impatient!!

Some more gulls here...

More great shots folks!

@ David S
Pity about the reflection of a log (?) on the lake but more than made up for by the great second shot "Look Ma, I am not standing on a branch!"

@ arescrew

It seems churlish to pick on one of a series of great contributions to this thread, so please regard this crop idea as a humble suggestion only.



I used the same "pano" style crop myself on this oystercatcher shot.

That first frame Keith is a little "heavy", don't you think -- I much prefer the second. The first pic, however, is the best.
